(4) Height – 36.7 cm / 14.5 inches £7000-9000 A curious point about these candlesticks is to be found on sconces 2 and 4, in the interior of sconce 2 can be found the Dublin town mark and date letter for 1714, while on the exterior of the base of sconce 4 is a section of foliate engraving. It would appear that a George I Dublin made waiter or salver was repurposed some 60 years after manufacture in order to produce these candlesticks. While the melting of older silver wares in order to produce new designs was common practice, a palimpsest such as this is a most uncommon feature. The refashioning of older plate in order to make these larger and heavier neoclassical designs is referenced by Wilfred Cripps in Old English Plate (1878), where after the melting’s of 1697 “scarcely less must have been melted down a century afterwards to furnish the mere metal required for the immense dinner equipages which altered the fashions of the day then rendered indispensable. No new supply of silver was available, such as that which once poured in from Spanish America; whence then came the tons of silver which were fashioned into dinner services with their various appendages by the London silversmiths, from Lamerie to Rundell and Bridge.” (page 276) Richard Williams, was warden of the Dublin assay office in 1766-7 and master in 1768-9. It is not uncommon to find Irish silver lacking the date letter, particularly in the second half of the 18th century. A pair of candlesticks of this exact from were sold Christies, King Street, 10th June 2010, Lot 343, £5000 premium inclusive.

It was also known as the Poets Road Synagogue. Jews fleeing the pogroms of the Russian Empire, and those beginning to leave the East End of London and move northwards towards Stoke Newington and Stamford Hill established a congregation in the neighbourhood by 1876. The Victorian Gothic building was erected in Poets Road in 1885, and became one of the leading members of the United Synagogues. At its height, the Poets Road Synagogue had hundreds of worshippers; it closed in the late 1960s, as the remaining Jewish population moved further afield. The synagogue site was eventually sold and the building, along with its stained-glass windows, was demolished in 1970, leaving no trace of the Jewish life which existed in this area.

Heraldic Silver Throughout the history of silver engravings or even castings placed upon an article of plate have been dedicated to the individuals and families who owned or commissioned these pieces. Ranging from a simple initial to an elaborate coat of arms of quarterings, which chart a noble or historic family’s ancestral journey, the visual combination of symbols and styles are endless. While initials are only attributable to precise individuals on rare occasions, the complex and somewhat mysterious art of heraldry, through coat of arms, coronets and crests, can allow us to access the identity of previous owners, through their marriages, titles and portraits. Though the annuals of history might survive inadequately, which can prevent certain names being directly discovered, others do and the heraldic devices reveal to us silver commissioned for; an important marriage, those repurposed from one century to the next perhaps by different families, or a component from a prestigious service owned and dined upon in a historically significant household. Heraldic silver provides a fascinating and rewarding avenue to link aspects of history that may otherwise lay forgotten and reminds us of the prominence those of the past placed upon their articles of precious metal which bedecked their daily lives.

Anthony inherited his fathers estates in 1803 and became high sheriff of Wexford in 1823, in about 1825 he purchased Bellevue House, whose family seat was at Abbeybraney near Gusserane. He set about modernising and developing the building. In 1856 the family took the startling decision to convert to Roman Catholicism, whereby a private chapel to the design of Augustus Welby Pugin was built adjacent to the house in 1859. Cliffe’s grandson Anthony Lotus Cliffe died in 1921, with his widow Lady Frances Power taking to London to live, leaving Bellevue unoccupied except for a caretaker. On the 28th January 1923 a group of armed men arrived at the building and set the building alight, reducing the mansion to a ruin, which was later demolished save for the chapel which escaped the blaze by act of the assailants dismantling the connecting corridor to the house. James le Bas originally trained in London from 1786 to work for Samuel Merton of Foster Lane thence moved to Dublin circa 1800. His first workshop was on Great Strand Street, Dublin until 1809 whereupon he moved to Ship Street besides Dublin Castle. William Middleton became his chief silversmith. Le Bas died in 1845.

355 An exceptional and large George III antique sterling silver salver, London 1787 by Elizabeth Jones Of square form with re-entrant corners and a reeded edge, raised upon four curved reeded bracket feet. The field with engraved decoration of four cartouches depicting male and female masks as allegories of the seasons reserved in stylised foliate scrolls and shells interspaced with floral spray cartouches similarly reserved connected by rusticated strapwork with foliate motifs. The centre engraved with a crest of on a chapeau gules turned up argent a greyhound sejant erm. Fully marked to the reverse and with scratch weight 19-18. Length – 49 cm / 19.25 inches Weight – 2860 grams / 91.95 ozt £10,000-15,000 The crest is that of the Hall family of London and Laventhorpe / Leventhorpe, Yorkshire The Halls were a prominent Yorkshire family which included Henry Hall (1541-1620) who was Lord Mayor of York, the descendants are listed as connected to Leventhorpe Hall, where a Henry Hall (16981762) ‘through gambling and other means he lost all the family property except a part known as “Hall’s Close”. This was left to his son John Hall (1734-1807), who due to misfortunes had to part ways with it. (Jordan,W. J., Colonial and revolutionary families of Pennsylvania; genealogical and personal memoirs, New York 1911, p.18-19) Elizabeth Jones registered her mark on January 15th 1783 of Bartholomew Close, she is believed to be the widow of Robert Jones. She specialised in the production of waiters, salvers and trays. A waiter with the very rare duty drawback mark is recorded (The Arthur Holder Collection, Wooley and Wallis 25th October 2016, lot 383) showing that the business sold abroad. A tray is shown in the collection of The National Museum of Women in the Arts, see Women Silversmiths 1685 -1845 P49. While a small amount of chambersticks and candlesticks are known bearing her mark the overwhelming aspect of her oeuvre appears to be oval and circular salvers, most commonly with a plain field or relatively simple engraved decorative bands. The present lot is exceptional on a multitude of fronts given the known corpus of surviving examples. This appears to be the only known example of a square salver by Jones, dating to a time when neoclassical design had led to much simplification of forms and ornament within silverware of the 1780’s, the square salver being most commonly encountered in the 1720’s-40’s. The anachronistic elements of the design of this salver can also be seen in the engraved decoration found upon the field, this rococo type ornament would more commonly have been found earlier in the 18th century when the square form was most popular. Similar large shells interspaced with masks can be seen on a rectangular salver of 1726 by Paul de Lamerie in the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, Massachusetts (Page 424 & 425). The extent to which both the shape and ornament depart from Elizabeth Jones more usual production may be explained by the present example being made to complement existing silver already owned by the family, or as patrons perhaps they did not care much for fashionable Neoclassical trends. This also represents one of the largest known pieces of silver by Jones, a 56cm long oval twin handled tray on four feet also of 1787 bearing the arms of Lund was sold Bonhams New Bond Street 22nd November 2006 Lot 172.

360 360 A large George III antique sterling silver salver, London 1784 by Daniel Smith and Robert Sharp Of oval form with cavetto edge and beaded rims, raised on four moulded bracket feet. The field later engraved with a coat of arms of eighteen quarterings within a contemporary robe of estate surmounted by a Duke’s coronet. Fully marked to the reverse. Length – 57 cm / 22.3 inches Weight – 2910 grams / 93.56 ozt £3000-5000 The arms are those of Barnewell, Baronets of Crickstown Castle, County Meath possibly for Sir Reginald Aylmer John De Barneval Barnewell (1838-1909) 10th Baronet of Crickstown Castle. There are several errors within the eighteen quarterings which differ from a known book plate of the Barnewell quarterings. It is likely that this salver once bore 18th century arms for a Duke and has subsequently been sold on and the arms of the Barnewells added to Dukes’s robe and coronet, both distinctions not befitted upon this family. It should be understood that long standing armigerous families may not have perfect knowledge of their arms nor engravers conversant in the art of heraldry thus discrepancies may enter in.

The crest is for Beauclerk For Harriet Beauclerk, nee Mellon, Duchess of St. Albans, (1777-1837) famous as a child actress, born into a traveling theatre troupe. She married firstly Thomas Coutts (1735-1822) the founder of the Royal Bank Coutts & Co. They were married secretly in January 18th 1815 following the death of his first wife under much opposition from Coutt’s three daughters; the Countess of Guilford, the Marchioness of Bute and Lady Burdett.They remarried on April 12th 1815 as the first ceremony was illegal. Upon his death in 1822 she inheretid his whole fortune and share in the bank becoming senior partner in Coutt’s & Co, taking an active role in decisions made in the business. The Morning Post recorded that “some time previous to his death he settled upon Mrs C the sum of £600,000 with the house in Stratton Street, all the plate, linen & c.- the service of plate is said to be the most valuable in any of the country- together with the house in Highgate, and all its appurtances...the whole makes her the richest widow in the United Kingdom.” She married her second husband William Aubrey de Vere Beauclerk,9th Duke of St. Albans on the 16th June 1827. In a letter to Sir Walter Scott, in reply to his congratulations on this marriage, Harriet wrote: “What a strange eventful life has mine been, from a poor little player child, with just food and clothes to cover me, dependent on a very precarious profession, without talent or a friend in the world – first the wife of the best, the most perfect being thatever breathed...and now the wife of a Duke! You must write my life...my true history written by the author of Waverley.” She died on 6 August 1837 at her home in London, and was buried in the parish church at Redbourne, Lincolnshire, the St Albans family seat. She left her husband an allowance of £10,000 a year for his lifetime, along with the use of two properties in London. The bulk of her estate, worth around £1.8m, was left to Angela Burdett (1814 – 1906), the youngest of Thomas’s grandchildren. However, the terms of Harriot’s will were written to exclude Angela from partnership in the bank. Angela was barred from touching the capital sum, but was given complete and independent control of the income from it. She was also required to take the additional surname of Coutts. Lastly, in the event of her marrying a foreigner, the fortune would pass to another member of the family. This last condition was Harriot’s response to the earlier marriage of one of Thomas’s grandsons to a member of the Bonaparte family; she could not countenance the prospect of the bank passing into French hands. Through all these conditions, Harriot did her utmost to protect the bank’s future, safeguarding the Coutts inheritance, even from beyond the grave. Lady Angela Burdett-Coutts thus became one of the wealthiest women in England and in 1871, in recognition of her philanthropic work, Queen Victoria created her suo jure Baroness Burdett-Coutts of Highgate and Brookfield in the County of Middlesex, she was also the first woman to receive the Freedom of the City of London in 1872. Her lifelong companion and former governess Hannah Brown, to whom she was devoted, died in 1878. Lady BurdettCoutts wrote to a friend that she was utterly crushed by the loss of “my poor darling, the companion and sunshine of my life for 52 years”. On the 12th of February when she was 67, she shocked polite society by marrying her 29-year-old secretary, the American-born William Lehman Ashmead Bartlett, who became MP for Westminster on 12th February 1881. Her new husband changed his surname to Burdett-Coutts. Because of her husband’s American birth the clause in her stepgrandmother’s (the 9th Duchess of St Albans) will forbidding her heir to marry a foreign national was invoked and Burdett-Coutts forfeited three-fifths of her income to her sister.

The Duchess of St Albans silver was stored in a vaults in Coutts until 1914. There upon some 35,000 ounces of silver formed part of the Coutts Heirloom sale, 14th May 1914, and various sales until 1920.

362 362 A George III antique sterling silver soup tureen, London 1789 by John Scofield Of oval neo-classical twin handled form, the body with half fluted decoration, repeated on the stepped lid with oval beeded finial. The bifurcated reeded handles with acanthus terminals. Double reeded and beaded borders throughout. The lid engraved with a contemporary dual crest of a talbot sejant and unicorn passant, the main body with a marshalled coat of arms flanked by supporters above a motto Pauca suspexi pauciora dexpexi. Fully marked to the base rim and part marked to the lid flange. Length – 46.5 cm / 18.25 inches Weight – 3235 grams / 104.01 ozt £3500-4500 The arms are for Portman quartering Berkeley, impaling Wyndham for Henry William Portman (1737-1796) of Orchard Portman, Somerset, who married Anne Wyndham (b. circa 1746) daughter of William Wyndham, of Dinton in the County of Wiltshire, on 20th January 1766. It is interesting to note that the Henry William Portman whose marital arms are upon this tureen also had a Wyndham descent through the marriage of his five times great grandfather, Sir William Portman, 5th Baronet of Orchard Portman (born circa 1610, died 1645 or 1648) to Elizabeth, (whom in had married circa 1644) daughter and co-heir of John Colles, of Barton and his wife, Elizabeth, daughter and co-heir of Humphery Wyndham, of Wiveliscombe. He developed 200 acres (0.81 km2) of meadow in London between Oxford Street and the present site of Regent’s Canal that he had inherited from his Tudor ancestor Sir William Portman, becoming the Portman Estate. The first building leases were issued in 1755, and building began in 1764 with Portman Square, which was to owe its popularity to buildings by Robert Adam and James ‘Athenian’ Stuart. It is not known why Henry William Portman used supporters to his armorial bearings as these are usually the prerogative of peers, Knights of the Garter, Thistle and St Patrick and Knights Grand Cross or their equal at the time of the engraving. A few baronets were also allowed supporters to their arms. Certainly, Henry William Portman has a descent from the Barons Berkeley created 1295 in common with his distant kinsmen, the Barons Berkeley of Stratton (created 1659, but this barony fell into extinction upon the death of the 5th Baron in 1773) who used the supporters and motto as cited above. Although no direct connection existed between Henry William Portman and his Berkeley of Stratton kinsmen he may well have unofficially adopted their supporters and motto by way of remembrance. Today the Viscounts Portman, as created for the above’s grandson Edward Berkeley Portman (1799-1888) in 1873, still bear as their dexter supporter, a savage with its attendant club. for a pair of waiters of 1789 by Elizabeth Jones bearing these arms, supporters and motto, sold Bonhams Knightsbridge 6th Oct 2010, Lot 609 for a pair of candlesticks of 1764 by Parker & Wakelin bearing these arms, sold Christie’s London 29th Nov 2011, Lot 386 for a salver and waiter of 1766 by Hannam and Crouch, bearing these arms, offered at Woolley & Wallis, 21st Jan 2014, lot 1034 The rare presence of double reeded and beaded borders as a decorative feature may be a particular quality of Scofield’s better work at this date, a salver offered in these rooms by Scofield of 1788 also possessed this unusual border (April 4th 2017, Lot 737).

In 1768, he married Maria Wilmot, the daughter of Sir John Eardley Wilmot, Chief Justice of the Common Pleas. On 17 July 1789 he legally changed his surname to that of Eardley. He served as Tory Member of Parliament for Cambridgeshire from 1770 to 1780, Midhurst from 1780 to 1784, Coventry from 1784 to 1796, and Wallingford from 1796 to 1802. In 1789 he was created an Irish peer, with the title of Baron Eardley, of Spalding in the County of Lincoln. An Irish peerage carried no seat in the House of Lords and thus did not disqualify him from membership of the British House of Commons. In November 1789 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) and he was also Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries (FSA). He was the first Provincial Grand Master of Cambridgeshire Freemasons, appointed in 1796, until his death. Lord Eardley was the son of Jewish banker Sampson Gideon (1699–1762) he the grandson of Portuguese immigrants. Under his influence his son was created a baronet, on 21st May 1759, aged only 13 years. Gideon Snr had lobbied for the same honour for himself from the prime minister, the Duke of Newcastle, but was denied it on account of his Jewish faith, as he remained a practising Jew. Sampson Gideon Jnr and his two sisters, on the contrary, whose mother was Christian, were baptised and brought up in the Church of England. Sampson Gideon Snr was a trusted “adviser of the Government,” and a supporter of the Jew Bill of 7th July 1753, which allowed for naturalisation of Jewish people. The Jewish people had shown much support for the government during the Jacobite uprising of the 1740’s and Gideon Snr as their chief financier had strengthened the stock market. The bill was repealed only one year later due to a public outburst of antisemitism and Tory opposition in the House of Commons declaring it an “abandonment of Christianity”. Sampson Gideon Snr, died at his home Belvedere House, near Erith, Kent, in October 1762, aged 63, having a gained a fortune recorded as £350,000. Lord Eardley died at 10 Marina Parade, Brighton, on Christmas Day, 1824, aged 80, his son’s predeceased him and the Barony thus became extinct.

Engraved t the front with an marshalled coat of arms with motto below Sola virtus reddit nobilem, surmounted by a crest of doe’s head couped with a spear in the mouth. Fully marked to the rimand part marked to the lid flange. Height – 18 cm / 7 inches Weight – 1089 grams / 35.01 ozt £2500-3500 The arms are for Shawe impaling Bell These arms belonged to a yet unidentified gentleman of the family of Shawe who married a yet unidentified lady of the family of Bell. Although there is a dearth of genealogical information concerning any marriage between the family of Shawe and Bell it is highly possible that the gentleman concerned was connected to the family of Shawe-Storey, of Arcot in the County of Northumberland. Here there is a presumption that the arms of Shawe as engraved upon this tankard may well been without authority for when Laurence Paulet Shawe (baptised 6th February 1842), of Arcot, who had lately served as a Captain in the Bengal Marines took the additional arms and surname of Storey by Royal Licence in 1873 he undoubtedly obtained a new grant of arms and crest based upon the arms above in order to rectify any armorial inconsistencies before the Royal Licence as per its conditions was allowed to be recorded at the College of Arms. If this hypothesis is correct such a marriage between the families of Shawe and Bell would probably taken place around the time of the manufacture of the tankard. Robert Storey (1732-1822) lived at Arcot Hall, Cramlington, Northumberland, England, and married a Miss Gillis of Madras in 1788. Robert Storey was a medical student and emigrated early in life to India where he became the Physician to the Nabob of Arcot, and was also involved in the Battle of Arcot. It was here that he made his fortune, and on his return to England purchased land at Cramlington from Sir John Lawson in 1791. He built Arcot Hall in 1802 82

William was the eldest son of Sir William Earle Welby, the 1st Baronet and his first wife, Penelope Glynne, the daughter of Sir John Glynne, 6th Baronet of of Bisseter in the County of Oxfordshire and his wife, Honora Conway. Although William was admitted as a student at Emmanuel College, Cambridge he never took a degree.

373 A George III antique sterling silver coffee pot, London 1762 by Lewis Herne & Francis Butty Of baluster form with upon a circular spreading foot, with embossed decoration of cartouche scrolls and stylised leaf work. The spout with stylised shell junction and the lid with a gadrooned urn finial. Engraved to one cartouche with a coat of arms with another in pretence. Later wooden handle. Fully marked underneath and makers mark and lion passant only to lid flange. Height – 25.5 cm / 10.25 inches Weight – 781 grams / 25.11 ozt £300-500 The arms are those of Hanvill with Hooper quartering Mackerell in pretence These armorial bearings undoubtedly commemorate the marriage of an unidentified gentleman of the family of Hanvill, possibly of the branch that was resident at one time in the County of Buckinghamshire or a descendant thereof to an unidentified daughter of the family of Mackerell. From an examination of the Heralds’ Visitation of the County of Wiltshire that took place 1565,2 there is a marriage of Jone Hooper the second son of John Hopper, of New Sarum in the County of Wiltshire and his wife, Agnes Porte who married a Richard Mackerell. Given this evidence there is a likelihood that another Mackerell daughter who was an heraldic heiress of a later generation married into the Hooper family and transmitted the arms of Mackerell quartered with Hooper to her descendants and it was this branch of the family who married a Hanvill. It was not unknown that marriages often occurred between cousins in a close-knit family circle. This may well be the case here. Sadly, there is a dearth of available genealogical information concerning the Hanvill family and its marital alliances that would ordinarily assist in identifying the couple whose arms these are.

These arms were also borne by the several families bearing the surname of Naper or Napier who settled in Ireland from Scotland.

Son of Jacob Jones of Cilwendeg (Kilwendeage, alt) Pembrokeshire. In 1831 he was High Sheriff of Pembrokeshire. His income from the Skerries lighthouse had been estimated at £20,000 a year. Died without issue. In 1841 Lighthouse purchase from family for £444,984/11/3d. About one third of this fortune is thought to have been invested for his sister Jane Martha Jones who lived at Cilwendeg until 1864 and the remainder to the family of the Rev. John Jones of Penylan who spent a lot on remodelling that house and puchasing Llanmiloe. Jane Martha Jones died and Cilwendeg inherited by Rev. John Jones’ daughter Margaretta Sutton Jones (died 1885). In 1844 she marries Mark Anthony Saurin, youngest son of the bishop of Dromore. They purchased Orielton Orielton in 1857. He became high Sheriff of Pembrokeshire in 1867, he died 1885. It is unclear why the arms for Morgan Jones are found on a tray made some 38 years after his death with no male heirs. It is possible this tray was engraved to match armorials already found on the family silver or replace a damaged or lost original.

(2) Length – 32.5 cm / 12.75 inches Silver weight – 4805 grams / 154.48 ozt £15,000-20,000 The crest is for Shakerley The arms are for Shakerley For Charles Watkin John Buckworth (1767-1834) of Somerford Park, Cheshire, who assumed the name and arms of Shakerley by Act of Parliament in 1788. His mother, Eliza Shakerley (d. 1811), heiress of Peter Shakerley of Hulme, married Charles Buckworth in 1764. Somerford Park, built circa 1720, extended circa 1800 and demolished in 1926 Heraldry The Shakerley coat of arms is displayed as a set of quarterings, The heraldry is as follows, Charles Watkin John Buckworth, who inherited from his mother the surname and arms of Shakerley, and the elaborate quarterings of his adopted coat-of-arms traces her family lineage back to the 14th century. The central coat of arms is composed of 22 quarterings, each representing a different coat of arms in the Shakerley ancestry. While a coatof-arms was only conferred on the Shakerley family in 1610, this engraving incorporates the coats-of-arms of ancestors, in the female line, all the way back to 1314. The first quartering (as seen in the upper left corner of the shield) corresponds to the coat-of-arms in the border at the 12 o’clock position, and is of course the Shakerley arms. The second quartering, at the 12:30 position on the border, represents the first in a very long series of heiresses that brought land, money, and ancient coats-of-arms in to the family. This one represents the marriage of Henry de Shakerley to Ellen, heiress of Shuttesworth, living in 1314. Nine quarterings derive from the advantageous marriage of Peter Shakerley (b.c. 1516) to Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of John Legh, whose mother was co-heiress of Robert Grosvenor of Hulme near Allostock in Cheshire. The Legh arms are seen in the third quartering (1 o’clock on the border) and the Grosvenor arms appear in the 17th quarter (6:30 in the border). Two coats of arms to the left of the border (8:30-9 o’clock) represent Grosvenor marriages to heiresses of the Fesant and Pulford families in the 15th and the 17th centuries. The Mainwaring coat just below these was brought in by the marriage of Peter Shakerley of Hulme (d. 1726) to Elizabeth, daughter and coheir to Sir Thomas Mainwaring, 1st baronet. Because they had no issue, the estate passed to his half-brother, George Shakerley. Even though Elizabeth Mainwaring was not an ancestor of Charles Watkin John Shakerley, the owner of these entrée dishes, her inheritance passed down to him and her distinguished family arms were incorporated into the impressive heraldic scheme so carefully researched and engraved for the family.
